You might find this news unfathomable, but it’s true: David Arquette and Courteney Cox are still legally married, despite having separated all the way back in October 2010. That’s like being separated for a millennium in HMT (Hollywood Marriage Time)! Factoring in Arquette’s erratic appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last month, intermittent rumors about Cox getting it on with her Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins and mutual overshares with Howard Stern last year, it’s a wonder it took until now for David Arquette to officially file divorce papers. Do you think he literally forgot he was married? We would honestly not put it past the man…
According to TMZ, Arquette cited “irreconcilable differences” on the filing he submitted last Friday; he is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s daughter Coco, and did not request spousal or child support. Overall, looks like a quiet end to a crazy…wait, what’s that? Arquette is representing himself in the divorce? He’s not getting a lawyer? Plus the papers he filed are dated March 23, implying that he just sat on them for three months? Oh boy. Well, we look forward to finding out the outcome of their divorce. Or rather, we look forward to our great-great-grandchildren finding out the outcome of their divorce, seeing as how we’ll be dead and gone for any number of decades at that point.
“I haven’t had a drink or ANYTHING since Dec. 30, 2010. You’re a knuckle head. I’ve been like that since birth,” David Arquettetweeted in response to a random woman’s reaction to his Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance last night. But man, you can’t blame that “knuckle head” for thinking the actor was on something! He arrived at the show with bloodshot eyes, laughing through every single answer, much the way a very high person does, or a person who is just naturally hyper and childlike, we suppose. And maybe he was just giddy about the brand-new Wonder Woman tattoo he got just before heading to Kimmel’s studio.
Heidi Klum freaked the hell out of us at her annual Halloween Party at Tao Nightclub. She came dressed as a corpse, complete with being wheeled in on a gurney.Â Ice-T and Coco are obvious picks too. We don’t what the hell Coco was dressed as as usual — there wasn’t enough fabric on her to tell — but Ice-T was Hannibal Lecter. Kim Kardashian made a pretty sexy and convincing Poison Ivy while hosting the Midori Melon Green Halloween bash at Lavo. You clearly can’t wrap a white sheet around yourself and pass off as a ghost anymore. (VH1 Blog has your fave VH1 stars in costume too!)

I scream, you scream, we all scream because there are hideous freaks surrounding Demi Lovato! Luckily those mutants happen to be friendly freaks, or else the “Skyscraper” singer would probably be having second thoughts about visiting Universal Studio’s Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights. Joining Demi and Universal’s motley crew of demonic beasts was a host of other celebs, including Wilmer Valderrama, Chad Michael Murray and an extremely skittish Elijah Wood. Though really, is there any other kind of Elijah Wood? Meanwhile, you know David Arquette suspected he was going to go out like that all along…
If star spotting are your thing then you should have been in Malibu yesterday. Celebrities were dotted all over the place — with their kids and significant others — from the beach to parks, and it looked like the ideal way to celebrate Memorial Day. Katie Holmes and Suri had a whale of a time on the beach, as did Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani and their two sons Kingston and Zuma. Also seen enjoying the surf with their kids were Marcia Cross and her daughters, and a preggers Tori Spelling. Spelling had rented a seaside home with her husband Dean McDermott.
Doing the whole beach party thing sans kids were a very pregnant January Jones and Barbra Streisand, who attended the same party. Cisco Adler and his wife also caught some sun. Checking out Malibu playgrounds and parks were Adam Sandler and his daughters (as seen in the picture above), as well as Alessandra Ambrosio and her daughter Anja. We hope you had a great long weekend too!
Paris Hilton held a premiere party for her new Oxygen reality show, The World According To Paris, in LA last night. The shindig was full of Hilton relatives like Nicky Hilton, Kathy Hilton aunts Kim & Kyle Richards…even Paris’ boyfriend Cy Waits showed up! Ok, there were a few people outside her immediate family there: David Arquette, the drummer from Velvet Revolver, some Real Housewives pals of the Richards ladies. But one noticeable absence was Brooke Mueller, former wife of Charlie Sheen and allegedly one of Paris’ “closest friends,” who’s set to play a big role on the new show.
Odds are Mueller’s still in rehab after last month’s jewelry-pawning meltdown, but that hasn’t stopped Hilton from telling the world how the show will feature plenty of Mueller’s struggle, with Brooke actually coming to Paris for advice. “I’ve been through a lot so I know how it is,” Paris recently told Ryan Seacrest, to which we can only say ‘O RLY?’ Wonder whose controversy Hilton will offer her wisdom on if Mueller doesn’t show up for season two…assuming this show even has one.

There’s a reason why Donald Trump looks so glum in this picture, while John Legend and girlfriend Chrissy Teigen look like they’re having a ball. Celebrities flocked to Washington D.C on Saturday for the White House Correspondent’s Association dinner and as usual the glam factor was pretty high. But the best part of the evening was that Trump was trumped by President Barack Obama and later, by Seth Meyers, who made some pointed jokes at The Donald’s expense in response to the “birther” debate.
Obama cracked some big ones like, “I know he’s taken some flack lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate issue to rest than Donald, and that’s because he can get back to the issues that matter, like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?” Meyers rubbed it in even further with jibes like, “Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.” Ouch. Donald’s massive ego must’ve taken an even more massive beating!
Now you see why Trump looks dyspeptic, right? But even he can’t deny that the dinner was an amazing success. The ladies looked gorgeous in full-length gowns (except Michelle Trachtenberg who needs to take it easy on the goth lipstick). Mila Kunis, Anna Paquin, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and a very pregnant Alyssa Milano hit it out of the ball park. Paula Abdul looked pretty fantastic too—surprise surprise. The men repp’d it with the likes of Ian Somerhalder, Chris Colfer and Chace Crawford looking sharp in their suits. This also happens to be the nightScarlett Johansson and Sean Penn made their hand-holding public. Page Six reports that Scarlett and Sean were all over each other at dinner with a source revealing, “She plopped down in his lap, and they were kissing.” We may not have pictures of their make-out sesh, but we do have plenty of the rest of the stars in all their finery. Check them out in our gallery below.
While everyone from Matthew Lillard to Emma Roberts attended this week’s Scream 4 premiere, it still felt like something was missing. It wasn’t until we checked out photos from the olden days that we realized what was wrong. Sure, they’d found all the old stars, but where was their wild nineties fashion! We don’t want David Arquette in a sharp suit—we want him dressed like a “pop-punk-ska” bass player! There were no trenchcoats worn with short skirts, no parachute pants, and not a single cornrowed Melissa Joan Hart to be found anywhere. They don’t just make Scream movies like they used to, they don’t make premieres like they used to!
See photos of fine ’90s fashion from your favorite Scream stars—plus celebrity pals like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and The Artist Formerly Known As Puff Daddy—in the gallery below.
You know the image of a worm eating its own tail? That’s sort of a metaphor for Scream 4. The film is a remake, a sequel and a movie about a movie, all in one. And with so many sly references to its predecessors, it’s hard to figure out where all the winking at the audience ends and the movie begins. That said, Scream 4 reunites all three main cast-members from the original films, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette, with director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, and it’s still an enjoyable movie, no matter how meta it gets.
The film takes place in Woodsboro, California, hometown of Sidney Prescott (Campbell), the former high school student terrorized by the original Ghostface killer who murdered all of her friends in 1996. All grown-up Sidney is back in Woodsboro (although her haircut hasn’t changed) on a book tour at the insistence of her pushy publicist, Rebecca, played by Alison Brie, because she’s written a self-help book based on her past. And where better to promote a book about moving on than the town you desperately moved away from?
But you know who’s not psyched to see Sid? Gale Weathers (Cox), who went from reporter of small-town murders to successful novelist of the Stab books based on said small town murders, to housewife (she married Deputy Dewey, played by Arquette, who is now Sheriff Dewey) with writers block. Dewey, however, is thrilled to see Sid, which annoys Gale, but not as much as Deputy Judy (Marley Shelton) annoys Gale. Judy has the hots for Dewey real bad and she’s not very subtle about it. That’s roughly all there is to her character, so consider this your first and last meeting with Judy in this review. Sidney plans to stay with her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell) and cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) while in town, but of course, as soon as Sidney arrives, teens start getting gutted by the truckload. Rounding out the impressive supporting cast are an underused Adam Brody and Anthony Anderson as cops, Hayden Panettiere as Jill’s sass-talkin’ BFF Kirby, and Rory Culkin as horror-film buff Charlie. (Not to mention cameos from Shenae Grimes, Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell.) A large percentage of the people listed here get murdered, FYI.
